leave the floor, this can be done by the extender bill all by itself being passed or it can be, as we hope, president obama and speaker boehner have some sort of a framework for us to put meat on that framework so we don't go over the cliff to have this bill be a part of it. and when that whole fiscal cliff debate is about jobs, you don't want to forget about the 75,000 jobs and the wind energy. and a lot of these jobs have already been on the -- have already led to some layoffs. we could bring those people back to work pretty fast. i yield the floor. i guess i would suggest the absence of a quorum. quorum call: a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from nebraska. mr. johanns: thank you, mr. president. mr. president, the founders of this great country -- spoeup sir, we're -- the presiding officer: sir, we're in a quorum call. january january -- mr. johanns: mr. president, i ask the quorum call be set aside. the presiding officer: without objection. the senator from nebraska. mr. johanns: the founders of this great country wanted the senate to be set up as a body

an historic bill that could drastically curb the power of unions in the state. president obama slammed the so-called right to work legislation during a visit there yesterday. >> what we shouldn't donie inii doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better working conditions. we shouldn't be doing that. you know, you know, these so-called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> to weigh in with her perspective is democratic state senator gretchen whitmer. congressional delegate met with the governor asking him not to sign the legislation. awe peeled directly to president obama. is there anything you can do at this point to stop it? >> i got to tell you the people are outraged not only is this anti-worker and anti-family, the way these republicans are going about it is anti-american. introducing it in a lame duck session at the 11th hour, locking people out of the capitol literally, that's what they did last week and tried to shut off my microphone. it is anti-american the way they're going about this and the reason th

's be clear, the bill being pushed there should be called the right to work for less, and that's exactly what president obama called it. to quote bob king, the visionary president of the united auto workers of this country, i quote him, every right to work state has lower wages, lower benefits, less security for their workers, and more income inequality, and they have a shrinking middle class. the u.a.w. is right. if you happen to live and work in a state that has a so-called right to work law on the books, you earn an average of $5,000 less a year than if you lived in a worker rights state. the bill signed last night in michigan strips labor organizations of their right to collect dues to cover the cost of negotiating a collective bargaining agreement. the michigan law is pure politics. no, it is more than that. it is old school, union busting technique, pure and simple. and in michigan and ohio, we know a lot about union busting. as the daughter of auto workers, i know the history of the hired goons who bludgeoned auto workers back in the 1930's at river rouge, as workers began to stand up

in 2000 -- during the bush administration. you recall congress was ready to give president bush a bill that he would have signed for immigration reform and right-wing talk radio went ballistic and everybody backed down, so they could blame president obama for not passing something, and it's remarkable to see everybody turning on congress that has not even come to the table with a legitimate compromise yet. >> stephanie: exactly. >> this is all pre-emptive teeth rattling. >> stephanie: and what romney just ran and lost on is hilarious. >> that's how you compromise if you are a republican, you offer what you offered before and say it is compromise. >> stephanie: all right. karl frisch if you want to make news busters you better come from something more insinary next week.

, completely avoiding this coming crisis. we passed that bill and sent it to the senate. of course the senate's refused to take any action on it. because president obama and his treasury secretary i think has on firmed this, they're eager to go off the cliff. they think they'll get political points by doing thises that political calculation by them to try to plame the other party and you know, let's have this crisis and go and push more taxes on the american people. if you look at what the message of this campaign was, there were a lot of messages. one was people wanted us to work together on bipartisan solutions and we've got those bipartisan solutions to avert this crisis but also to avert so many of the other crises facing this nation. another thing they said, probably the loudest thing people said is they want us to focus on the economy and creating jobs. that's what's the biggest concern for most families across the country. people in southwest louisiana. they're concerned about a sluggish economy and in many cases it's the policies coming out of washington creating these problems. if yo

his legacy for the next four years. >> well, both ronald reagan and bill clinton had strong legacies because they had strong growth in the second terms of their presidency. if barak obama has growth not much more than 2%, his legacy will be ashes. it's surprising to me that he is incapable of recognizing that and trying to put something in place that will bring the economy back to life. >> gretchen: read all about it in the "wall street journal." always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, he joined the army after pearl harbor and then flew on missions to test the atomic bomb. up next, this world war ii veteran, he will share his incredible story. then they can't make a deal in the fiscal cliff. what do you know about your elected officials and what are they doing instead? passing a bill that bans -- had is big -- wait for it -- bans the word lunatic. that's crazy!

are going to have to come up. it may not be all the way up to the 39.6% where they were under bill clinton before the bush tax cults but i think you're seeing some element of pragmatism, some understanding that obama really does hold the cards having campaigned on this, having won re-election, having, you know, the sort of default being on his side, which is that all these things go away at midnight on december 31st. i think you are starting to see some movement despite the rhetoric. the question is really i think for obama, you know. i think -- he will have a deal available to him to avoid going over the fiscal cliff, i think, in exchange for raising rates a bit. the question is, is it a good enough deal or does he just say it's not a good enough deal, i can get a better deal by going over the cliff and i prefer to do that? because you guys haven't moved toward me enough. >> david, the sentiment noam expressed is the same we heard from tim geithner a few days ago. we've had a number of congressmen on this show who have said the same thing. it does seem at least that the sentiment may be s
